With the help of these Sims 4 codes and cheats, you can influence the gameplay and bring things to your advantage. in this JoinGames Article we share with you the latest and active sims 4 cheats.
The benefits can be very specific, such as having an infinite amount of money, but also very general to make the game a bit more fun for yourself.
And you shouldn’t feel guilty either, because since Sims 4 is not an online game, you don’t spoil the fun of other players. Sims 4 is your kingdom and you are lord and master!
That’s why cheat codes have been so numerous since the first Sims.
Every sequel since then has been packed with cheats to change the game, and they’re not going to break that tradition in Sims 4, of course.
Almost every aspect of the game can be changed: having unlimited money, accelerating your Sims’ career, influencing emotions, … Anything you can think of is possible. On this page, we list all Sims 4 cheat codes.
How to activate Sims 4 cheats
Before we start with the Sims 4 cheats, let’s talk about how to enter them.
Depending on whether you play on a PC or Mac, or a PS4 or Xbox, this way is very different.
Activate cheats on PC and Mac
To enter cheats, first open the console with the key combination “CTRL + SHIFT + C” or “CTRL + SHIFT + WINDOWS + C” on a PC or “COMMAND + SHIFT + C” on a Mac. Then type one of the cheat codes below into the console and confirm it with the Enter key.
You can only enter one cheat code at a time, so if you want to activate multiple Sims 4 cheats at the same time, you will have to type them in one by one.
There is also a general mode in the game where you can cheat, called the testing cheats mode. Activating this mode will give you many more options to interact or manipulate with Sims or objects in the game. We will tell you more about this at the bottom of this page.
Activate cheats on PS4 and Xbox One
On consoles entering cheat codes works the same way. You do not have to activate the console with the keyboard, with these button combinations:
L1 + R1 + L2 + R2
- Xbox One
LB + RB + LT + RT
Then enter the code ” testing cheats true ” in the window and you are done.
But be careful: once you activate cheats in Sims 4, you will no longer be able to earn achievements or trophies in the game. Not even if you turn off the cheats afterward.
Finally, a more important warning: keep in mind that cheats affected the game and can lead to a broken save game.
In addition, different activated cheat codes can counteract each other if they are active at the same time and thus disrupt the game. If you don’t notice the effect of a cheat, consider if you haven’t already activated a cheat code that does the exact opposite of what you want to achieve.
If a game no longer works properly because you have activated too many cheats at once and you have lost the overview, just save the game, exit the game, restart the game and load your game again.
All cheats will now be disabled so you can start with a clean slate.
The console that you activate with the button combinations can only be seen as a white line in the top corner.
Only if you enter a valid cheat code will it expand and, if necessary, confirm the activation or deactivation of the cheat code in it.
It doesn’t matter whether you capitalize the cheat codes or not. In addition, some cheats only work after activating the testing cheats mode. For other cheats, you have to define parameters. We indicate this with square brackets. An example is entering the name of the Sim for which the cheat must be activated.

Sims 4 cheats: pregnancy and having a baby
It wouldn’t be The Sims if there weren’t any Sims 4 pregnancy and baby cheats that can spice things up a bit.
Save your game before trying it out! Be sure to take a look at our general The Sims 4 Pregnancy and Babies page.
If you don’t want to wait three or four in-game days for a birth, you can fast-forward to labor this way (once the pregnancy is confirmed).
Select the pregnant Sim as the active character, open the in-game console for cheats and write: Sims.Add_Buff Buff_Pregnancy_Inlabor. This ensures that the moodlet ‘Pregnancy: To Birth’ appears and you have the baby immediately.
If you want to be less drastic but skip trimesters, you can type in: Sims.Add_Buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester #. You then replace the ‘#’ with numbers 1, 2 or 3 depending on the phase you want.
Forcing single children, twins, triplets, and more
Even through cheats, it is not easy to determine your number of babies. Still, you can try the following method:
- Step 1: Find out your Sim’s 18 digit ID number. You do this by opening the in-game cheat console and typing: Sims.Get_Sim_ID_By_Name SimFirstName SimLastName. The number appears, but beware: you cannot copy-paste it.
- Step 2: Manipulating the Force Offspring Count. For this, your Sim in question must already be pregnant and have the ‘Eat For Two’ moodlet. Then enter this cheat at the console: Pregnancy.Force_Offspring_Count IDNumber #. You replace the ” # ‘with the number of babies you want. This way you can even go beyond triplets, but keep in mind that you have to respect the limit of your household.
